Utility360 offers a complete energy management package to businesses across the UK; by controlling energy costs we can improve the efficiency and bottom line profits of businesses.
There are three main sources of energy in the UK, namely electricity, gas and water. OFGEM is the regulator for the gas and electricity markets. Its role is to protect and advance the interests of consumers by promoting competition where possible and through regulation where necessary.
Pricing in the business marketplace is both more complex and competitive than in the domestic market. Consequently, many businesses neither take the time nor use their resources to research the market for lower prices and value, despite savings of up to 40% being achievable. This means that may businesses need professional and impartial advice in obtaining the best deal on their energy contracts.
"I joined the Utility360 network over a year ago and have been delighted by the level of support from the team. Their assistance has allowed me to build my business to a significant degree." – Theo Vanderpol
Utility 360 franchisees have exclusive territories, encompassing 4,000 target businesses, to whom they provide energy audits and then recommend the very best deal available for that client. We work with all of the major utility suppliers and over the years have developed excellent working relationships with them. They trust us and give our franchisees immediate access to their best products and prices.
"I have not looked back since I joined the Utility360 team.

My advice to anyone thinking of joining Utility360 is to do so without delay!" – Sarah Sheppard
